Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : September 3 2008
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, September 4, 2008 35 STREETVIEW Balloon ban, just hot air? Tasha Ward Tara Thompson Georgette Chidiac Nina Skourou Krys Richardson Some locals in Concord think Canada Bay Council is a 'party- pooper' for banning helium balloons at all council and community events. While a few locals agree with the council's environmental concerns, others feel it should concentrate on more important environmental issues. Tasha Ward, of Concord: I don't use them anyway. Helium balloons are just things I don't have interest in using. They frustrate me and they are not very healthy for the environment. So either way it doesn't bother me if council bans them or not. Tara Thompson, of Concord: I agree with Canada Bay Council banning them. I'm sure they had good reasons for banning them and it doesn't affect me because I don't use them. I think if they are going to fine people for using them they should give them a warning first because not many people know they are banned. Council has their reasons, which is fair enough. Georgette Chidiac, of Concord: I think it's absolutely pathetic. Who do council think they are, banning people from using helium balloons at special events? We are using them in our area for our own private functions. When I see people having a birthday in the park with balloons it just expresses their happiness. There are just too many silly rules. Nina Skourou, of Concord West: I'm for balloons and my family still uses balloons at parties. It's for a celebration and when you pass people with balloons you get a positive feeling. I don't think it seriously harms the environment because they don't go that far anyway. Krys Richardson, of Burwood: It's a joke. I was brought up with helium balloons and I think there are bigger environmental issues than helium balloons. Before they choose to get rid of them they they should stop selling cigarettes and concentrate on the more serious environmental issues.
